​The purpose of the Communicative Sciences and Disorders (CSD) Program is to provide an education and scholarly environment in which undergraduate and graduate students receive quality academic training and professional experience in the field of Speech-Language Pathology.


The Program functions within a student-centered environment devoted to learning, research, scholarship, creativity, professional expertise and personal development designed to ensure that students are ethical, knowledgeable, skillful and capable of working independently and in collaboration with clients, families and other professionals.


The commitment of the CSD Program to the University’s mission is reflected in the undergraduate and graduate academic course work in normal and abnormal development and behavior across the human life span; in course work that engenders awareness of issues in culturally diverse populations, in human communication disorders, in diagnostic and treatment methodologies, in clinical practica requirements and in technology-integrated course work teaching independent research skills that support lifelong learning.


The master's of science degree in speech-language pathology at Alabama Agricultural and Mechanical University is accredited by the Council on Academic Accreditation in Audiology and Speech-Language Pathology of the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association, 2200 Research Boulevard #310, Rockville, Maryland 20850, 800-498-2071 or 301-296-5700.
